by Arthur Radclyffe Dugmore. There was only one small problem: at the time he was forty-four, too years too old to enter the army. The army accepted Mr Dugmore as an officer and sent him off for immediate training. Despite having spent a large slice of his life in the outdoors in Africa painting and writing about wildlife, he must have found the trenches a shock.

Dugmore 282) Dugmore also frequently brought to light the attitude of the men he was serving with. In just about any circumstance, his comrades would be singing uplifting songs, be respectful, and never lose their temper. In one circumstance, several men were severely injured during the Battle of the Somme. As a whole, Dugmore did an excellent job of recording the many events which he had been through during the course of the war. Several points of the story are so suspenseful and well-written that the reader can virtually imagine that he or she is right there as it is taking place.

The 'Tykes' of the light infantry during the Great War This book was written during wartime by a gassed British infantry officer incapacitated and no longer fit for service in the trenches. Dugmore was an unusual soldier who would normally have been considered too old for front line duties from the outset. He was already well into middle age at the outbreak of hostilities having spent a career as a naturalist and sportsman and it was only due to influential friends that he managed to obtain a commission in an infantry regiment-the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. Yet this was not his first experience of the Western Front. As the German Army swept into Belgium, the civilian Dugmore-armed only with a cine camera-travelled to the front as the small Belgian Army vainly attempted to stem the advance, to experience the war at first hand. His account of this early stage of the war makes unusual and fascinating reading. After joining the army, the author joined his regiment serving in the trenches during the period leading towards the First Battle of the Somme in 1916 and it is this and his time during the battle itself that are the principal subjects in this account. Dugmore's book is, of course, full of admiration for the Yorkshiremen with whom he served and he gives much detail about trench warfare as well as valuable insights into the Somme attack, its consequences and dreadful aftermath. Available in softcover and hardcover with dustjacket.
  • I read anything about WWI as I am obsessed with it. This author gives good descriptions of the trench warfare from the author's eyes but his style is a little dated.

  • This book is a great read! I don't know how the style can be dated, the author published it in 1918.
